This all-seasons pullover was an ode to cool summer evenings. The crossed stitches mimic classic fisherman’s sweaters and handmade wicker furniture.

The body has a slouchy relaxed fit, with long lean sleeves that slide easily into a jacket and can be worn cuffed or not. Choose the size that gives 3-8” of positive ease (that’s a finished measurement 3-8” larger then the upper bust, measured around the ribcage at the underarm) for a comfortable casual weekend sweater.

If you prefer a more tailored look and want your Jamestown pullover to fit true to size, choose the size that most closely matches your actual measurements and adjust the sleeves accordingly. The Crosshatch pattern has more give then a traditional cable stitch would but going up to the sleeve for the next size up will result in a more balanced silouette. Just remember to work the raglan shaping to match the body.
